Ushering in the New Year

I will be ushering in the New Year with my family, nothing fancy but surrounded by lots of love. What I’m wearing represents what I’ll look like on the inside, underneath the jeans and sweater. This is not the best outfit to wear to a house party surrounded by children squealing in delight as we [Read more…]

Officially Sweater Weather

I hope you and your family had a wonderful Christmas. I spent the holidays with my husbands family in in the great white north of Sudbury – 30 cm (1 foot) of snow greeted us. It seems like a lot, however, there have been times when the snow banks were so high they covered cars [Read more…]

It's Going to be a Wet Christmas

Fair Isle Fun

I am really enjoying fair isle sweaters, something about me in a ski chalet hanging out. Now I went skiing this year, in February, while I was in Banff. I hadn’t skied in 20 years and just got up one morning and decided I would go skiing alone while my husband was in a series of [Read more…]

Lilla P- Tailored for a Casual Lifestyle

Whenever a clothing company approaches me to work with them I feel like Sally Fields “You like me, you really like me!”. Sometimes the collaboration doesn’t work, and then there are times when everything is seamless…introducing Lilla P. In 1998 the line started as a collection of essential tees and then expanded to include jackets, [Read more…]

Chunky Knits & Banana Republic

I’ve been glued to my television trying to understand the tragedy in Sandy Hook. I’ve prayed and mourned for the families affected and have been hugging my children tight. Everything else has seemed so trivial. Life will get back to normal especially with the Christmas holiday season in full swing, however, a piece of the [Read more…]
